Pencil Bar Scribble Press NY

April 24 – what a beautiful day on the upper east side of Manhattan as we cut the ribbon on the brand new Scribble Press NY!

Everyone was excited to get inside and start making books.  It was fun to use the brand new studio, marker caddies, and markers.  The 2600 sq foot space seemed cavernously huge!

Some kids chose to make bookmarks or notepads instead of a book, and there was a face painter, jugglers, and a band!  The excitement spilled out onto First Avenue where we were passing out balloons as people left the studio.  The brand-new staff was overwhelmed by the great turnout, but in a good way – pretty much everyone got their books before leaving the store, and we saw many happy faces of newly published authors.  It’s always fun to see a child looking at his or her published book for the first time! 

We’re all in love with the pencil bar and the cozy lounge too, and hoping to bring some of the great ideas we discovered in New York back to our LA location as well.   We’re looking forward to a great summer of writing and creativity on both coasts.  Hope to see you there!
